Quote# 87464

The Minnesota Family Council says it will introduce an amendment banning same-sex marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships in Minnesota in the next few days. The group announced the new amendment push at a press conference with fundamentalist religious leaders on Tuesday.

Those leaders put forward a multifaith diatribe against gay and lesbian relationships stating that should gays get the right to marry, the world would end.

“If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,” said Ikram ul-Huq, the imam and religious director of the Muslim Community Center of Bloomington.

Funny, I read that, "said Ikram ul-Huq, the imam and religious dictator of the Muslim Community Center of Bloomington."

Makes more sense that way.

Well, then, it's a good thing that not everyone is gay, Ikram ul-Strawman.

@breakerslion: Agreed. Also, 'turkey basters' and surrogates must mean nothing to these people.

“If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,”

Only about 13% (maximum) of a population is usually homosexual.It really isn't possible that the whole population of a species will suddenly become homosexual.

Women do not loose the ability to have children by being homosexual you idiot. Any fertile woman can still get pregnant via sex with a man or by artifical insemination. Many homosexual couples do this today to have children.

You do not understand biology, population statistics, or probably anything else.

It is literally impossible that everyone in the world could become gay.

“If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,”

WRONG!(And hyperbole as well)

1 generation - maybe, but unless you didn't notice, most people live a bit longer than 10 years. Not to mention, most people's fertile period is between 25-40 years.
And that is ASSuming legalizing gay marriage will somehow lead to THE WHOLE WORLD turning gay overnight. In reality, between 10-15% of people are gay (I suspect that about 1/2 of those are at least bi, although I have no evidence).

Well fuck. First Amendment 1 goes through in my new state, and now my old state wants to do the same thing? FUCKING A!

I seriously wonder if these idiots think that gay people are like zombies, if one bites you then you turn into one and go around trying to bite more people, etc.

Are we going to base all of our policies on retarded, physically impossible hypothetical situations? I mean by that logic if every baby born from today was male wouldn't that also doom the human race, and yet I don't see you thinking that being male is inherently immoral.

5/21/2012 8:45:58 AM

Someone should post this at Freep: they're paranoid of LGBT's AND Muslims. I'd be curious to see which side they'd take... although most likely they'd just spin it into one of their conspiracy theories.

And Ikram, you seem very ignorant of demographics, human sexuality, and reproduction.

5/21/2012 9:01:15 AM

Would that to ever happen, which it won't, by what mechanism would the wo- oh, right, magic. Bloody magic, again. The whole "magic isn't real" thing really is lost on these people.

@Osiris: No, but he probably thinks that being born female is immoral. Does that count?

5/21/2012 9:09:28 AM


Anyone who thinks that if homosexuality isn't violently put down everyone will turn gay is NOT straight. Only a closeted gay would make that assumption.

5/21/2012 9:16:37 AM


If gays get the right to marry, then everyone will become gay? And the biological imperative will disappear? If people whose brains functioned like this were working in any other field, they'd be sectioned. But somehow they become religious leaders instead, and then suddenly their random outpourings are newsworthy.

5/21/2012 9:45:27 AM


Except that everyone isn't gay. The number of gay people in the general population is 8-12% and likely to remain at that point whether gay marriage is legalised or not.

5/21/2012 9:54:00 AM


Everyone isn't gay, however, and there's certainly no reason to believe that recognizing same sex civil marriages will turn even ONE heterosexual man or woman homosexual, let alone turn ALL heterosexual men and women homosexual.

5/21/2012 10:01:05 AM

“If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,”

And if everyone is a camel, same thing. Just as fucking likely to happen too...

It seems that America now attracts idiots from all over the globe...

5/21/2012 10:07:28 AM


We can but dream.

5/21/2012 10:13:34 AM

And yet leftists still continue to support the "rights" of this terroristic, fascist political system disguised as a religion.

5/21/2012 10:22:37 AM


@ Brendan Rizzo

That's an easy assumption, but possibly premature. He could be native-born. But either way, trust me when I tell you there are idiots on every continent.

“If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years,”

So? Not everyone is nor will be homosexual. Also, human extinction won't mean the end of the world </nitpicking> and it would take over 10 years for all humans to die. Also, if nobody felt like reproducing people would probably start doing it as a duty or artificial insemination would skyrocket.

5/21/2012 10:38:49 AM


I don't know where you learned to do math, or where you developed the logic that because gay marriage is legal it's someohow mandatory, but you should probably go back to fucking kindergarten.

5/21/2012 10:45:05 AM


@ Brendan Rizzo

Headache, is that you?

5/21/2012 10:52:10 AM

Legalizing gay marriage will not magically make everyone gay.

If legalizing it would make YOU gay, that just means you're already gay. Stop projecting.

Why would everyone be gay?
Alowing gays to continue to marry, is not going to increase the rate of homosexuality (5-10%).
